Sen. Chuck Schumer latest Democrat trying to panic the markets

President Obama and his Treasury Secretary Jack Lew have been trying to panic the markets since the government shutdown took effect two weeks ago. And after the Senate failed to achieve cloture for a “clean” increase of the debt ceiling on Saturday, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) got in on the action, claiming the debt ceiling debate would worry the markets beginning today.

“We are now at the place to where I said, ‘You better be prepared because ya never know when it's going to happen,’” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Chuck Schumer was again trying to spook the markets, but Chuck Schumer isn't the only one. The President is saying the same thing.”

SCHUMER: I worry on Monday that when the American markets open, maybe because of this vote, that they will start worrying and not only will the stock market go down but interest rates go up and the value with the dollar -- the value of U.S. treasuries decline. It's very serious.

“Unbelievably irresponsible,” Pat said of Sen. Schumer’s remarks.

“I want you to know Chuck Schumer is right. Chuck Schumer is right. And here's why he's right,” Glenn explained. “As soon as the Fed decides to raise interest rates, this game is over. It's in a three-month death spiral.”

Columbia University Professor David Buckner joined Glenn on the Glenn Beck Program a couple of weeks ago to talk about the road that leads to hyperinflation. While the debt ceiling debate alone cannot achieve the “crisis” President Obama and his cronies speak of, it could serve as the trigger event David described:

PART I:

PART II:

“Just five or eight years ago, everyone said [this] could never happen. Well, all of them have happened. All of them have happened,” Glenn said of David’s analysis. “Now all you're needing is an event, and if an event happens that causes the Fed to raise interest rates, the stock market will then plummet and people will start to panic and in three months, in three months you could have an American dollar that is worthless.”

“Understand this is exactly what Chuck Schumer is now talking about and what they are cheerleading for,” he continued. “I don't even really have as much of a problem with Chuck Schumer doing it, but he's only doing it for political reasons. And I know that because he has mocked people like me before and mocked people like you for buying gold. He’s never warned you before. But anybody who has been warning you, when the situation wasn't this serious you can believe, but now they are doing it for political games and they will talk this market down.”

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
